The Benefits of Coffee

June 12, 2013


I read an article in The New York Times (so highbrow) which outlined the findings of a number of recent studies on the benefits of coffee. You know, just in case you needed an excuse to have another…

“In a study of over 400,000 people, men who reported drinking two or three cups of coffee a day were 10 percent less likely to have died than those who didn’t drink coffee, while women drinking the same amount had 13 percent less risk of dying during the study”

” a reduction in the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, basal cell carcinoma (the most common skin cancer), prostate canceroral cancer and breast cancer recurrence.”

“Participants with little or no caffeine circulating in their bloodstreams were far more likely to have progressed to full-blown Alzheimer’s than those whose blood indicated they’d had about three cups’ worth of caffeine”
